Editorial Reviews

The first Billy Jack film! A malicious motorcycle gang harasses the residents of a small California town, intimidating most residents to not report them to the police. Among the gang's crimes is the rape of four young women. As the gang attempts to threaten the women into not testifying at the indictment hearing, one of the women, Vicki, comes under the protection of Billy Jack, who has also had several run-ins with the gang. Packed with bikes and bikins, this breakout drive-in hit propelled star Tom Laughlin to independent stardom and began a whole new movie legend! Featuring a spectacular new high-definition digital transfer for unsurpassed quality!

I'd bet, If you were to ask any Tom Laughlin fan what their favorite film was they'd probably say "Billy Jack" but for me it's always been "Born Losers". This is a movie about a gang of Hell's Angels running rampant in a small California town. The town's people live in complete fear of the bikers and even though the police have guns they seem afraid to step in or confront the Bikers. Tom Laughlin who plays Billy Jack is absolutely great in the role he created.

Billy Jack seems easy going as he goes about minding his own business, but he just can't stand by and watch someone being victimized. Now this is the point when everything starts to explode as Billy Jack takes on the biker gang by himself. Born Losers has the goods and delivers them right up until the end. This movie was not a big Hollywood blockbuster, It was a low budget independent film and the most successful of it's time.

Billy Jack fans do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of "Born Losers" today, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. This was the first film that the character of Billy Jack appeared in and after seeing him you won't forget him. This movie has violence and some nudity, so it's definitely not for the whole family. This is my favorite Billy Jack film and I'm glad to finally have it on DVD.

Image Entertainment states that a new spectacular high-definition digital transfer for unsurpassed quality was used for this DVD release. The picture is pretty decent for the most part and better than any previous DVD version I've seen, but it still contains some noticeable scratches and debris here and there. The sound is in 5.1 Digital Dolby this time around and it sounds clear and crisp on my sound system. The film is presented in its 1.85:1 aspect ratio and enhanced for 16:9 TV's. There are two Audio Commentaries with the makers of the film included as extras. The legend begins with Billy Jack!

BORN LOSERS is the real, first BILLY JACK movie. A notorious biker gang, known as THE BORN LOSERS has rolled into / taken over a small town. Violence ensues. Soon, ex-green beret, BILLY JACK (Tom Laughlin) is forced into action. He brings the martial arts beat-down, but these bikers are resilient! After raping, pillaging, and kidnapping their way onto BILLY's $***list, we get the final showdown, complete w/ a rifle shot between the eyeballs of the gang's insufferable leader! Sweeeet! So, forget all of that pseudo-pacifist cheeeze that is the sequel (BILLY JACK), and get right to this throwback throw-down! Extra points for cool biker names- CUEBALL, CRABS, GANGRENE, CHILD, etc...

This was the start of the Billy Jack Legacy as this movie hit the theaters on August 18 1967 starring Tom Laughlin as Billy Jack, Elizabeth James as Vicky Barrington, and Jeremy Slate as Daniel Carmody. A motorcycle gang led by Daniel Danny Carmody rides through the local towns terrorizing the people and the local law is afraid of them. Enters Vicky Barrington who races to the airport to pick up her dad only to find out that she was rejected again. While the gang is riding the come across a young kid who they beat up and Billy Jack comes to his rescue. Billy is arrested along with the bikers and thrown in jail. The gang ends up raping four women who they have threaten the women into not testifying. Vicki who was raped goes under the protection of Billy Jack who has also had several altercations with the gang. The gang escalates their pressure on both Vicki and Billy Jack to keep her out of the courtroom. Some facts you may not know. This picture was banned from Sweden because of its high violence rating in 1968, 1972, and 1975. When Billy Jack and Vicky go into eat at a local restaurant they are met by an astrologer. The astrologer asks Billy when his birthday is, Billy told him August 10, and that is the real birthday of Tom Laughlin. Thoughts on the movie! I thought it was a great movie that kept my interest all the way through. You can see way Tom Laughlin did all four Billy jack pictures because he was excellent in his role as Billy Jack. Elizabeth James was excellent in her role as Vicky Barrington. She was gorgeous riding around in that white bikini on her bike. Because of Vicky and the action in this movie I give this picture 10 weasel stars.

I enjoyed this movie. I saw it in the movie theater when I was a kid and always wanted to watch it again. The only negative was that the movie had some scenes cut out. I looked around for a version that I thought was not cut and was a little disappointed when I watched this version. It is still a good movie but if you had seen the uncut version you will notice that some scenes are missing. If the uncut version is for sale down the road I wiil definately buy that copy. This movie is a classic and could be the best biker flick of all-time.

***CONTAINS SPOILERS*** One person's trash is another's treasure, as they say. Some movies are bad and painful to watch. This one is so bad it makes Edward D. Wood Jr. seem like Cecil B. DeMille by comparison, but it gets three cheers from me, a JOY to watch (why I'm not quite sure), great, priceless. In the POOREST of taste, with some of the worst possible acting, dialogue, music, etc.- including Jane Russell, the mother of a rape victim, who wears tight, lowcut gold lame gowns and jewels (during the day), and seems to have forgotten every acting lesson she ever had. The script is stupefying, as if written by a bunch of none-too-bright 13 year olds, how they THOUGHT bikers, cops and abused teens would speak and behave, the worst lines EVER, pushing your "outrage" buttons and priming you to revel in the orgy of retribution that Billy unleashes on the bad guys. The police are totally inept- thank goodness for intelligent, sensitive, spiritual, altruistic, hunky, KICKASS Billy Jack. I can think of few other films that are simultaneously schmaltzy, well-meaning and yet utterly crass.

I am a big fan of Tom Laughlin, don't get me wrong- I thought the sequel, Billy Jack, was actually a pretty good film (though evincing many of the same flaws as this one). I saw Billy Jack at the drive-in and thousands of people extended their fists out of all their car windows on the way out of the drive-in, in complete silence, in tribute to Billy! It was an incredible moment, actually, but I guess you had to be there. Laughlin's directing improved dramatically (pun intended) between the two films.
